Syrian conflict invades space of Turkey and Lebanon

| No Comments

Turkey scrambled its military jets Monday after Syrian planes bombed rebels fighting near the border of Turkey and Syria, according to The Washington Post

The unexpected violence left Turkish civilians panicked and fleeing across the border. At least one person was killed, and 20 more were wounded, according to Associated Press

NATO will be meeting Tuesday to discuss whether Syria or Turkey will receive Patriot missile systems.

Lebanon also experienced a spilling over of the conflict in their area when Lebanese troops exchanged fire with rebels across the border on Sunday.

Some are fearful that if the violence continues to cross borders, a regional war larger than just Syria could be in effect.
